This paper describes a fabrication and investigation of a metal-supported solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) with magnetron-sputtered Ni anode and ZrO2:Y2O3 (YSZ) electrolyte. As a metal supports were used a porous Ni3Al samples prepared by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). Deposition of the electrolyte films was performed on the porous Ni3Al substrates which preliminary were coated by a Ni leveling and gas-diffusion layer. The surface and cross-section microstructure of Ni3Al substrates was investigated. The cells were also characterized by means of i-V characteristics and impedance spectroscopy at an operating temperature of 600-800°C.
